|I live in northern Indiana and I would like to plant a tree in a halved whisky barrel container for my front porch where there isn't any direct sunlight that would hit it. I would like to leave it outside year round, but I guess I could bring it in for the winter if I had to. Could you make a few suggestions? I would love to do a small blue spruce pine... do you think that would work?|

|Welcome to NGA, @RandiOpliger .
A blue spruce might work in a half barrel for a while -- they do eventually become huge trees, though. Also, I believe it would grow very skimpy, not nice and bushy like it should grow, if it isn't getting full sunlight.
It would probably be better to consider something that can actually tolerate shade if you want to leave the barrel on the porch.
